VCC/CliffCare Route Development Moratorium-GNP 1-Nov-2018 At 4:24:46 PM Goshen
> UPDATE: Just to clarify - this voluntary moratorium was NOT initiated by Parks Victoria. It is a request from the VCC/CliffCare to temporarily refrain from establishing any new routes.

I'd expect this kind of blanket ban from parks; but not from the representative of Victorian climbers...

How about: No new BOLTED CRAGS to be developed for one year, and no new routes at Black Ians (or name other affected crags). That gets to the heart of the problem, without restricting the 'general freedom' of climbing.

Unless Bushwalking is also banned; I see no difference between tramping across the base of a cliff, and wandering up it with an occasional piece of gear, leaving no trace of actually even being there; as a Trad FA nearly always is.

If bouldering is an issue, that requires some extra / different guidelines. They are done differently; if a sensitive / protected area contains caves / boulders that are importance; ban bouldering there. Real climbers have no interest in boulders.
